Book Description
About the Book

Textbook of Indian History and Culture has beeri designed for undergraduate students as well as those preparing for the Civil Services Examinations, at both the central and state levels. It is a daunting task to write a book of this kind when dynamic changes have occurred in the last three decades in the historiography of modern India, including the advent of subaltern studies, that has changed our perspective completely. This user-friendly textbook attempts to weave the known facts of history with the unknown, and thus foster a spirit of enquiry among its young readers. Apart from political history, due emphasis has been laid on socio-economic changes, administrative innovations, cultural ferments and the trials and tribulations of nationalist movements. Due importance has also been given to the post-independence era that led to the emergence of a new India, vibrant with a fresh lease of life.

This study of Indian History and Culture has been designed for both students and general readers. This book puts emphasis on the main currents of Indian history in all its facets: political, social, economic and cultural aspects.
